@D2 what do you mean? A top MBA has many practical applications. If one wants to move into consulting or executive corporate positions it's a must.

You won't know until end of December if you get in, assuming you applied round 1, so really only 6 months or so before school

What good will an MBA do for you?

^that sounds good, but really how practical is mba?

Don't tell HR until close (4 weeks or less) to the time you wanna leave. Employment is at will for both you and them and if you tell them early they could cut you loose earlier than you're planning on.

Feckin plebs
